Body Lift Expert in Los Angeles - Dr. Kenneth Hughes

 

 

What Is a Body Lift?

A body lift is a surgical procedure that involves removal of excess skin by way of an incision that extends around the body (also called circumferential body lift).  Body lift surgeries are frequently necessary after massive weight loss, aging, or as a correction for previous surgeries.  There are two types of body lifts – a lower body lift and an upper body lift.  Dr. Kenneth Hughes is a bodylift expert and has been asked to review bodylift literature.

 

What Is a Lower Body Lift?

The lower body lift (also referred to as belt lipectomy) is a surgery that involves removal of loose skin by way of an incision that goes around the waist and helps tighten the abdomen, sides, lower back, outer thighs, and butt.  The lower body lift will create a flat abdomen along with an improved waist and an improved lower back. At the same time, the buttock can be lifted and the outer thighs can be improved.

A patient may need a tummy tuck to take care of the skin and abdominal wall laxity in the front of the body.  However, some patients may have loose skin on the back, buttocks, or lateral (outer) thighs as well. This is referred to as a posterior lower body lift.  The tummy tuck and the posterior lower body lift performed at the same time is a lower body lift.

What Is an Upper Body Lift?

An upper body lift involves a breast lift and a bra-line back lift or upper back lift.  The breast lift obviously lifts the breasts and the upper back lift helps to reduce upper back redundancy or bra rolls.

What to Do with the Loose Skin? A Bodylift with Dr. Kenneth Hughes May Be the Answer

           Dr. Kenneth Benjamin Hughes, a Harvard-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, is an expert in body contouring procedures and body lift procedures.  A body lift involves removal of excess skin by way of an incision that extends around the body.  Body lift surgeries are frequently necessary after massive weight loss, aging, or as a correction for previous surgeries.  There are two types of body lifts – a lower body lift and an upper body lift.

The lower body lift (also referred to as belt lipectomy) is a surgery that involves removal of loose skin by way of an incision that goes around the waist and helps tighten the abdomen, sides, lower back, outer thighs, and butt.

A patient may need a tummy tuck to take care of the skin and abdominal wall laxity in the front of the body.  However, some patients may have loose skin on the back, buttocks, or lateral (outer) thighs as well. This is referred to as a posterior lower body lift.  The tummy tuck and the posterior lower body lift performed at the same time is a lower body lift.

An upper body lift involves lifting the tissues of the upper body, often including a breast lift and upper back lift or bra-line back lift.  In this fashion, both the chest and the upper back can be improved in those patients who have deflation and volume loss as well as loose skin in those areas.  The bra line back lift is performed by few plastic surgeons.  The breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation procedures as well.

Patients who typically undergo removal of this skin after massive weight loss can be left looking boxy or dumpy or square or straight up and down.  Their buttocks can look flat and short.  The waist can look large and the hips can look dented.  Dr. Kenneth Benjamin Hughes can create a much more favorable physique and silhouette by utilizing unique skin and fat resection techniques.  Dr. Kenneth Hughes also contours the body with liposuction and fat grafting techniques including Brazilian buttlift or BBL as well as implant options for volume restoration, including butt implants.
